POOL InternationaleTanzfilmplattform Berlin

POOL is a recurring format for dance- and animation-film. The Aim is to create a platform for dancers, choreographers, directors, artists, organizers and other interested people. POOL offers space for a mutual exchange of experiences, developing and advanced training, and presentations prospects. It`s a platform for those kinds of films, which picture dance not as a simple documentation, but more as a creative piece of art, using cuts and several other techniques for creation. We also like films which include every kind of non-dance movement in choreography. Moreover biographies of creators are less important or whether it`s a high or low budget film.

Films shouldn`t be longer than 30 min and also not only a documentation of a dance piece. That means the filmed material should be edited in any way. Exceptions are films, which use the pure documentation as a part of the creative process.
